Hi I am a NEWB and I have some questions concerning what Optics to buy. I have two ar15 rifles on order.  A 2007 version of the S&W MP Performance Center and a Fulton Armory Carbine with 16 inch barrel.

The M&P is easy. I want a durable scope to shoot 100 to 800 yards. Will be benchrest/BIPOD at the range and plinking in the woods. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Looking for a good scope that will help me shoot tight groups.  Thinking of Nightforce, Leopold, and Trijicon  Accupoint.   Are there any others I should condsider?
price range $400 - $1200.


The Carbine is more difficult. Is it possible to have sight that allows precision shooting out to 300 yards and CQ shooting? Again it will be used at the range and in the woods.
Will an ACOG allow for this type of shooting? Can you shoot tight groups at 300 yards or is it just used to hit silhouettes?
Are any sights capable of tight groups at 300 and quick target acquisition up close?


Thanks!

No need to post in both places the thread probably belongs in Tactical due to the type of gun.
Recap
800 is unrealistic for most might be possible with 69 gr 77gr 80 gr bullets.
Nightforce verygood (add money), Zeiss conquest good glass limited internal adjustment, Leupold ok glass lots of adjustment, IOR good glass.   Xotic might be worth waiting for.
Trijicon Accupoint great scope no way to adjust for distance no target knobs no bdc marks - Best used under 300 yds.
CQB  Trijicon TA442  gives me inch and a half groups at 200 yds.
TA442 Trijicon 1.5x16 Compact Acog Rifle Scope                                                                                Trijicon 1.5x16 Compact Acog Rifle Scope
